focus on the technical components, design, and structure of film. I’d also like you to consider the distinction that you might make between a film that functions as art and a film that functions as entertainment.
For that matter, you might consider how the same film might function as both art and entertainment, and what specifics about the film might lead to one type of experience vs. the other.
So your discussion post instructions are to analyze what you believe is the most successful film as art that you have experienced. Explain how the film functions as art–what are your criteria for making this judgment–and defend your evaluation.
In writing your post, it may help to focus on the technical aspects of filmmaking–everything but the plot and the actors’ performances. Instead, think of the careful integration of either background or featured music at key points. Consider the visuals, how certain shots are staged, how the colors (or shadows and contrasts, if B&W) enhance the “feel” of the film.
